Photography trip to Kaengkrachan 25-30th April, 2016

Kevin Bartlett wanted to photograph Broadbills after some work in Bangkok.
We spent 6 lovely days together both inside of Kaengkrachan National Park as well as in the outskirts and some fields of Petchaburi province.
Kevin managed to photograph 5 species of Broadbills much to his delight. He also got his 1st Pitta and just generally had a good time with the birds.

These are my own images. I didn't pursue all birds as I have photographed them previously.

It was still dry in the park after an unusually long dry season. Birds were starting to breed though and we did encounter sporadic rain.

The Pittas were active as well and we heard 4 species and saw 2.

We also saw numerous Yellow-rumped Flycatchers as well as a few Green-backed. These birds are passage migrants and otherwise not seen in the park.

Lodging and dining was at Baan Maka, the default choice of accommodation.
